At the time, the media was trying to make him into a viable candidate so they could have their horse race.

As if it was his to give, to begin with.

But Biden can't get the gop to work for America, so he needs to be impeached, pronto.

Well. The last time a country gave Russia half of another country, it ended really well for the world.

I had my doubts, but the "think about it" sealed it for me.

Also this one time Fartbongo didn't salute his tan arugula, therefor Trump is all-time President-King and KKKillary KKKlinton has to sit in the dunk tank at Mar-A-Lago dressed as a circus clown.

Maybe he could have given him Greenland, but he couldn't close that deal, either.

You know who else was okay with a country annexing part of another country based on "ethnic population"?

Prison and consequences is for petty things like not being able to pay a parking ticket.

Russia doesnt need Trump to give him half of Ukraine when Germany is doing its best to bankrupt ukraine military budget by building Nord Stream 2. Germany : appeasing russian dictators since 1939.

Germany is basically giving Russia the gun and the bullets to hold them hostage.
 
2021-06-09 8:16:10 AM  
How was Ukraine even his to give?

In early June, Ukraine's President Zelenskyy told US Senators visiting Kyiv that the country's military defense against Russia and the completion of the Nord Stream 2 pipeline are directly linked. Once the project is finished, Ukraine will be deprived of revenue needed to finance defense spending and secure Europe's eastern border. "Nord Stream 2 will disconnect Ukraine from gas supplies, which means "disconnecting" us from at least USD 3 billion a year. We will have nothing to pay for the Ukrainian army," Zelenskyy commented.

Nord stream 2 is no big deal say people paid off by the kremlin.

Understanding Mankind used to be pretty easy, but the taker kept bombing him off cages and choke slamming him through cages so now it's a little too slurry.

be kind to your mankind, this is not the appropriate  handling instructions:

None of which has fark all to do with Trump making promises to Putin.  I mean, two bad things that involve Ukraine can exist at the same time.

This in no way is a validation of your argument, just an indication that it is a distraction to this thread.

Actually it was the fact, and not many people really understand this, that the GOP and the right-wing echo chamber spent decades turning Bill and Hillary into the personification of evil for their base. I mean this quite literally: The conservative voter will crawl over flaming shards of broken glass to vote against one of TEH CLINTRON!!!11!1111!1!!

Nobody, not even Hillary, really understood the depth of hate the average conservative living on a diet of Faux Newz and right-wing echo chamber social media. They truly despise her, and Bill but he's not running ever again, and Chelsea as well. They will show up at an election to vote against a Clinton, even if they don't like the conservative candidate.

I am old enough to remember a time when news of this would be almost universal condemnation and demands arrests be made, treason be tried. To see a candidate actively conspire with the enemy like this us unf***king real, worse that Man-child is not hanging from the gallows already tried and condemned as a traitor.

Congrats MAGIdiots, you will go down in history as sucking the **** of a traitor worse than Benedict Arnold.

Being able to pull his entire family business up to the federal trough and gorge themselves like pigs?

Nixon sabotaged the Paris Peace talks in order to prolong the war and help his election chances, according to one of his envoys.

Reagan clearly cut a deal with Iran not to release the hostages, then sent them military aid.  Bush 43 later pardoned everyone involved.

Why wouldn't Trump sell out the country for his own self-interests?  It's always been rewarded so handsomely by the GOP faithful.

You'd think that giving Putin half of Ukraine would be more than enough to settle Donnie's debts.  But Putin knows an easy mark when he sees one.

I'm guessing all other pertinent links are paywalled.

I'm not buying it because no one has been tougher on Russia than Trump.

He said so!

Yeah, that sounds about right.

At the time the Soviet Union split up, Ukraine held about 1/3 of the Soviet nuclear arsenal.  I am pretty sure that is what Putin wants.

And if so, that is what he was trading for.  Trump either knowingly or not was trading to give a potentially dangerous rival nation additional nuclear arms.

This, however, was not newsworthy.

You mean "everything driving Right Wing America since Nixon, or even Goldwater"?

Trump more or less ran the primary wire to wire, without significant challenge (Romney had each opponent paraded out in front as a proper "not Romney"  wingnut, but none of them got taken seriously).  This wasn't the media.  This was 40% of America seeing exactly what they wanted in a President, and another 7% or so going along with them.

Putin also got four years of an idiot American POTUS sabotaging America from within.

Correct. Clinton hatred runs deep.
